Lecture: You Are Not a Gadget: The Undiscovered Continents of Human Potential
Jaron Lanier—scientist, author, musician, and artist—visits campus to ruminate on "media technology as a grand exploration of unimagined human potential." Combining elements of cognition, Microsoft's XBOX, chemistry, and musical improvisation, among other things, Lanier takes us on a journey into the possibilities, pitfalls, and potential of New Media. Lanier has been labeled the pioneer of virtual reality (a term he coined), and his 2010 bestseller "You Are Not a Gadget: A Manifesto," has been described by the New York Times as "necessary reading for anyone interested in how the web and the software we use every day are reshaping culture and the marketplace." Recorded February 8, 2012.
